New to Rock Gardening Need Help
Hi, I've recently purchased a home and the front yard has this tree stump that the previous owners tried to hide with river rocks and slate.
I was considering planting daylilies where the river rock is and in the center place a shallow terra cotta dish with various hardy succulents, and perhaps fill the gaps all around the slate with more hardy succulents and alpines or whatever else would work.
Would appreciate if anyone can suggest type of soil mix I would need to fill within the slate and the dish and perhaps some suggestions on hardy plants. BTW, the little Japanese maple is probably dead and may have to remove it. Thank you!
